GENERAL STATEMENT. 



Aaron Seminary was founded in 1891, and stands as 
a boon to the people of the section in which it is located. 
The necessity of this Institution is unquestioned. The 
work that the school has already done and the great de- 
mand for the education of the masses is a living appeal 
for the existence of the Institution. The year just clbsed 
has been one of marked success and the Seminary enters 
upon the Twentieth Century with much encouragement. 
The Faculty has been increased. New departments have 
been added. The people are becoming more interested. 
In fact our school seems destined to a greater work. 

LOCATK)N. 

Montezuma, N. C, the seat of the Seminary, is nes- 
tled among the peaks of the Blue Ridge mountains, a 
section that is becoming a popular resort for both the 
health and pleasure seeker. While the school is under 
the auspices of the Methodist Episcopal Church, it is en- 
tirely free from all sectarian teachings. It is the desire 
of the Faculty to inculcate in the hearts of the students 
the truths of Christianity, yet it is not the wish to teach 
the creed of any sect. 

THE AIM OF OUR WORK, 

We do not claim to do the work of the college or\ 
university. Our course is only preparatory to these high- 
er institutions. We simply bridge the chasm between 
the public school and the college or university. If young 
men and young women are prepared for these higher in- 
stitutions we have no place for them in our school. If 



AARON SEAflNARY. 5 

they have not had the preparatory work we are prepared 
to accommodate them by giving a preparatory course at 
a minimum cost and as thorough as can be had else- 
where. Besides preparing students for a college course, 
it is our aim to prepare them for any of the ordinary du- 
ties of life. To elevate, to refine, to inspire to higher 
ideals of living is the sole aim of our work. We solicit 
all desiring a course of this kind to call on us before going 
elsewhere. 

REGULATIONS. 

Mild yet firm discipline will be enforced. Good con- 
duct will be required of all students. It is the hope of 
the Faculty to promote gentle manners, correct habits, 
noble desires. Polite and refined manners are an essen- 
tial part of a true education and no student will be neg- 
lected along this line. 

The incorrigible will be dealt with in a manner which 
seems best in the judgment of the Faculty. 

Students are required to attend chapel exercises, to be 
in their rooms during study hours and to abstain from 
all immoral and imprudent conduct. 

Non resident students are not allowed to leave town 
without permission of the Principal or the Associate Prin- 
cipal. Students will be held responsible for any damage 
done by them to any of the school property. 

The associations of ladies and gentlemen must be in 
accordance with the regulations of the Faculty. 

The use of tobacco is prohibited in the building. 

Parents will be notified to take their children from the 
school when their conduct does not conduce to their good 
or tends to impair the dignity of the school. 

LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

There are two Literary Societies connected with the 
school, the Websterian for young men and the Sappho- 
nian for young women. These Societies hold weekly 
private meetings and occasional entertainments before 
the public. 



6 AARON SEMINA R Y. 

A course of lectures will be delivered before the stu- 
dents of the Institution by eminent men, to which the 
public will be invited. 

The students have free access to a library of several 
volumes which belongs to the Seminary. Additions of 
standard literature will be made to the library as the 
school advances. 

riUSIC DEPARTMENT. 

A department of both vocal and instrumental music 
has been established. Thorough instructions will be 
given in piano, organ, guitar, voice, and the rudiments of 
music. Special attention given to private students in 
both departments. 

BUSINESS COURSE. 

A business department has also been established. 
Such instructions will be given students as will enable 
them to enter correctly, accounts in both single 
and double entry Book-keeping. The course will include 
Business Correspondence, Practical Grammar, Business 
Forms, Penmanship, Commercial Law, Banking and 
Spelling. The authorities have been very successful in 
securing Prof. M. J. Klein, of Knoxville, Tenn., to take 
charge of both the music and business department. Prof. 
Klein has had several years experience in teaching and is 
quite proficient along his line. 

EXPENSES. 

Board. 

Board, including fuel, lights, washing, etc., may be 
had in private families at from $6.00 to $7.00 per month. 
Students desiring to board themselves will find on the 
campus comfortable rooms furnished with bedsteads, ta- 
bles, stoves and chairs for rent at very low rates. Fami- 
lies desiring to move to Montezuma for the benefit of 
the school may find comfortable houses to rent at a 
small cost. We hope to organize a Co-operative Board-

of a careful and economical matron.
